Wilderness Walk: 1-0-3 Edition

Aaron Holm

The Minnesota Wild played well through their 4-game homestand but only managed to acquire 1 win and 5 points in those 4 games.

The Wild let another extra point slip away in a shootout last night. This is not a trend they should get used to. Every extra point will be crucial down the stretch.
